In late 2004, following a successful decade under the SN95 banner, the Ford Motor Company finally released the Fifth Generation Mustang to the masses. The Fifth Generation ran from 2005-2014, with the vehicle undergoing a major redesign in 2011. The new S197 body style paid homage to the First Generation pony cars in design, with an eye towards the future as well.
In addition to the aesthetic changes in which people could see, the S197 Mustang also featured a host of modifications under the hood as well. A generational shift often includes an engine switch, and V6 owners could enjoy an all-new 4.0L motor from 2005-2010. The 244 cubic inch engine effectively replaced the outgoing 3.8 L Essex OHV used in 2004 and older models, thus differentiating the 2005 Mustangs from its predecessors.
The new V6 offered improved modest performance gains from the factory, but if you are looking for even more out of your 4.0L Mustang, investing in an aftermarket Mustang 4.0L supercharger would be an excellent place to begin! Ford Mustang 4.0L superchargers can supply roughly 46% more horsepower and 31% more torque to the wheels, thanks to its ability to compress air that is brought in from the outside.
Once the freshly drawn in air is compressed above atmospheric pressure, the Mustang 4.0L supercharger forces it into the V6 engine, where it is combined with a larger than normal amount of gasoline from the fuel tank. In order to fully compress the air, the Mustang 4.0L supercharger must spin faster than the engine itself. Once it compresses the air, your aftermarket Mustang 4.0L supercharger will create a much larger and more powerful explosion than ever before, which will provide instant horsepower and torque gains, along with instant throttle response.
Because of the excellent and unrivaled results in which they offer, Ford Mustang 4.0L superchargers are one of the most expensive aftermarket modifications that you can make. However, if you want instant results, a new supercharger far outweighs any cost concerns. In addition to instantly improving your pony car's performance capabilities, a new Mustang 4.0L supercharger can further complement any additional aftermarket engine upgrades that you have in the future.
Each engine modification you make will get a multiplier effect thanks to the forceful charge your engine receives from your pony car's supercharger. Whether you wish to enter the racing circuit or if you simply want your V6 to keep up with the big boys, you cannot go wrong with an aftermarket Mustang 4.0L supercharger!
